other non-profit or trade association or group in the country. the nra for instance, they represent all gun owners and second amendment believers but not everyone has to pay the nra. nra is still in existence because they do a good job. melissa: mark, what about that? does that mean union workers to prove their worth? >> i think unions fight for workers every day. there is plenty more we can be doing. i've been a vocal critic my entire career in the labor movement people who lay back, don't do enough. making too much in terms of officers salaries or cutting deals with bosses. i certainly believe we need to do better. this is not in any way something to celebrate. this is further tilting playing field in favor of corporations, taking rights away from working people. i disagree with vinnie. nra you can join it or not tell it. your boss isn't telling you in who uncertain terms he prefer if you not and your job might be in jeopardy if you do. melissa: how do you know that is what is going to go on here? unions are well-established. in many -- >> it is multibillion-dollar inindustry, com

, but i think it will happen. david: we will see. if the nra is smart, they will focus on the one particular issue, this is not about having a rifle to kill deers, this is not a deal for hunters. this is a deal for 2nd amendment, for individuals to be able to defend themselves from oppressive government. that's what the 2nd amendment was all about. you may not like it. you may want to change the constitution, mr. president, but go ahead and call for it, this is not about hunters' rights. it is about individual's rights. stuart: david thank you. i'm going to say it, this is an opinion, california is hopeless. a landslide victory for president obama in november. voters approved higher taxes for themselves, or at least the rich in their state. a statewide carbon tax. coming up next, what's ahead in california in 2013? power consum, impact wool exports from new zealand, textile production in spain, and the use of medical technology in the u.s.? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-

news is the nra and the comments coming out right now. let's listen in to this. here it is. >> no sane person can ever possibly comprehend them. they walk among us every single day. does anybody really believe that the next adam lanza isn't planning his attack on a school he has already identified at this very moment? back how many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame? back from a national media machine that rewards them with wall-to-wall attention and a sense of identity that they crave. they provoke others to try to make their mark. a dozen more killers, a hundred more, how can we possibly even guess how many given our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill. the fact is this, that would not even begin to address the much larger, more lethal, criminal cross. killers, robbers, rapists, gang members that have spread throughout our communities across the nation. meanwhile, why -- while that happens, guns have decreased to the lowest levels in a decade. so, now, due to a decline of willingness to prosecute dangerous criminals,

to do things differently. >> what about the nra? president obama: the nra is an organization that has members who are mothers and fathers. and i would suspect they have been impacted by this as well. hopefully they will do some self reflection. herhere's what we know. any single gun law can solve all these problems. we will have to look at mental health issues, schools, a whole range of things that joe's group looks at. we know issues of gun safety will be an element of it. and what we've seen over the last 20 years, 15 years is the sense that anything related to guns is somehow an encroachment on the second amendment. what we're looking for here is a thoughtful approach that says we can preserve our second amendment, we can make sure that responsible gun owners are able to carry out their activities, but we will actually be serious about the safety side of this, that we will be serious about making sure that something like newtown or a roa aurora doesn'tn again. visit a good chunk of space from what the second amendment means and having no rules at all. that is what joe is going to b

and listen to this, the nra has signed up 8,000 new members everyday in the past week. we will hear from the nra on this issue tomorrow. press conference is planned. what do you make of this? charles: people who own guns have a legitimate concern that ultimately the tragedy will be used to not just go after assault rifles and enhancements but to go after their guns. three hundred million guns were not used in that massacre, people are legitimately afraid they're going to lose those rights. liz: i am horrified by the trend. it is appalling. we have too many guns in this country. we have to get rid of the loophole that allows people to buy essentially assault weapons from -- without a background check. i don't think those should be on the street at all. we need save the commission that regulates toy guns and the national highway traffic commission and the safety administration monitoring cars and protecting people from cars. we need more government protection from too many guns. stuart: there must be millions of assault weapons out there in america today. if you ben them are you banni
